V Blocks are designed for holding round parts.
They are compatible with CYCLOTRON tables, Adjustable risers, L brackets, etc for adjustment of height.
V-blocks are used in industries where precise measurement and delicate holding of objects is required, such as metal working.
They are a type of workholding device used in drilling, grinding and finishing operations.
They are also used for cutting and machining of metal parts. These devices are also used for making holes in sheet metal.
They consist of a rectangular block with a 120-degree channel rotated 45 degrees, forming V-shaped channels on the top and bottom.
V-blocks are made with a small groove cut into their bottom. Screw clamps often hold the work in place, and there are also magnetic versions for use with metalworking. V-blocks are sold as pairs of blocks
Different types of V blocks
Standard V bLock
Standard v blocks are machining aids that support cylindrical stock while it is being worked.
Square/round stock V blocks
Many v blocks will hold more than just round stock—they can be used to clamp sheets of material into position. V blocks with screw holes at both 90-degree and 45-degree angles are designed to hold square or cylindrical parts.
Four way V Block
These four-way v blocks have multiple sized channels for different workpieces, and the lack of clamps means some surfaces are magnetic to hold pieces in place.
Tilting V Block
Tilting v blocks (or adjustable angle gauges) are square pieces of stock that can be used to position other material at an angle before it is machined. The block’s tilt will vary depending upon what the user needs, but once a setting is found, a locking mechanism locks in place so there won’t be any slippage during use.
Magnetic V Block
The magnetic force of a pair of V-blocks holds parts in place instead of clamps.
